6:48 pm
she's been detained by iran for more than a year, but today word came that sarah shourd might soon be free. a tehran prosecutor went on state television to announce that shourd would be released for half a million dollars in bail. but he called her an american spy and said her case will still go to trial, along with those of the other two americans, who will remain in custody. shourd's was detained on the iranian border with iraq in july. along with two americans. they claimed they were on a mountain hike in northern iraq at the time and they denied charges that they were spying. the reversal by the prosecutor's office revealed the struggle for the balance of power among iran's ruling elite. the initial decision to cancel sarah shourd's release has been seen as deeply embarrassing for president ahmadinejad. now it seems as though he may have prevailed. among the reasons cited for shourd's release, her health. when the three hikers were allowed a visit by their parents
6:49 pm
in a tehran hotel in may, it was clear that a year in iranian prison had taken its toll. shourd's mother has said her daughter has been denied treatment for serious health problems, including a breast lump and precancerous cervical cells. when the lawyer for shourd and two others met, they said it was the first face-to-face meeting since he was hired by the families late last year. he said shourd will be able to go home in two or three days. the timing of sarah shourd's release is yet to be determined. but with iran under scrutiny over human rights and facing intense pressure over its nuclear program, president ahmadinejad's likely hopes that to soften iran's image before he speaks at the u.n. in new york next week. >> alley. thank you so much. in washington, the big debate over tax cuts took a new turn today, with the house republican leader signaling at least some flexibility on the issue, nbc's mike vicera is at the white
